Intracommute - Karim Sultan
Supracommute - Karim Sultan
Drawn from a diverse collection of field recordings and musical sketches over a two-year period, Intra-commute pieces together and superimposes sounds of transit, radio, music, conversation, and events from Doha, Dubai, Mumbai, Amman, and London into an introverted narrative structure. Supra-commute takes these elements and reconstructs them into musical forms.
As well as working on a new piece for the Safina Radio Project, these earlier works by Karim Sultan tie into the project’s overarching themes of displacement, diaspora, borders and surveillance.
